TLM greatly increases in German speaking regions

With a biretta tip to Rorate    o{]:¬)   I pass this along.  Very interesting!

The German language site Die Kreuz has a story about the rapid increase in Germany, Austria and Switzerland in the celebrations of Mass with the 1962 Missale Romanum follow Summorum Pontificum.

I wonder if stats like this are being kep in other countries.

    Sorry, the Institute of the Good Shepherd was created in 2006, not 2007.
